Red Funnel Isle of Wight Awards

The Isle of Wight is an amazing place, filled with diverse and remarkable places to go, stay and eat. These are enjoyed by over 2 million visitors a year (as well as 140,000 of us locals), and the strength of Isle of Wight tourism businesses puts us up with the top destinations in the UK.

The Isle of Wight has so much to offer within the tourism industry and we wanted to recognise and award as many local businesses as possible. So, we came up with four main categories in which we believe encapsulates all the best of island; Food and Drink, Things to Do, Stay and Other.

Food & Drink Categories

One of the greatest assets to the Isle of Wight is the vast array of food and drink offerings. The Island is full of unique dining experiences with different cuisines in every town, ensuring that there is something for everyone. Vote for your favourite places to dine and drink below.

There is something for everyone with glamping to caravans stays or even 5-star holidays. What better way to celebrate the wonderful mix of opportunity by celebrating them in the Red Funnel Isle of Wight Awards.
